Carter Fishing Trip

We are excited to announce the 3rd Annual Carter Fishing Trip. For the third year in a row, President Carter is demonstrating his support for the Patient Safety Movement’s goal of ZERO Preventable Deaths by 2020 (0X2020) by offering an opportunity to join former President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter for a private fishing trip in Georgia.

This year, the top two healthcare institutions that have committed to saving the greatest number of lives through commitments to implementing processes, such as Actionable Patient Safety Solutions, will be invited to attend this exclusive trip.

To be considered, make your commitment to ZERO by August 1, 2017. Winners will be announced in September 2017. The trip will take place October 13-15, 2017.


Winners will commit to saving the greatest number of lives during the competition (January 3 – August 1, 2017).

To enter you must:

  • Make a new Commitment or update an existing Commitment.
  • All fields on the Commitment form must be completed.
